Tumber Explains Importance of Robust Piping System

When a data center in the Midwest was undergoing expansion, it was critical that the piping system be powerful.

Saahil Tumber explains what happened next in “Case study: Data center piping” in CSE magazine.  A piping system comprised of 8–inch schedule 40 steel pipe with welded joints and fittings was used to create chilled water supply and return pipe loops beneath the raised access floor. The 8-inch pipe loops incorporated lugged butterfly valves at strategic locations to ensure that the piping system was concurrently maintainable  i.e., pipe segments could be isolated for maintenance activities without impacting the critical loads.

Tumber also discussed the keys to choosing the best pipe system in another CSE article.
